Yokohama Taisho 1910s Unknown
Onoecho-dori (尾上町道り, occasionally transliterated as Onouecho-dori), Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. The photographer pointed his camera towards Bashamichi-dori. Two streetcars can be seen. Streetcars ran in Yokohama from 1904 (Meiji 37) through 1972 (Showa 47). Locals called them Chin Chin Densha (ちんちん電車). The first line on Onoecho was opened in 1904 (Meji 38), it made the curve that is visible on this image. A split off to Bandobashi was opened in 1911 (Meiji 44), effectively dating this image to the 1910s, as everything seen in this photo was destroyed in the Kanto Great Earthquake of 1923. The domed building is the Toyou Ginko Bank. It opened on Onoecho 5-chome on December 15, 1907 (Meiji 40), The tower in the back is the Yokohama Shiloh Church (横浜指路教会), established in 1874. American doctor and missionary James Curtis Hepburn (1815-1911) played a major role in the creation of this church.
